A term that has been coined by "purist" dubstep fans to distinguish their preferred genre of music from anything mainstream. Like many hipster-based opinions, the only real classification that can be made to differentiate brostep from dubstep is that brostep is more popular.

The two forms of music both focus on sweeps through very low frequencies of bass and what many like to call "wub" or "womp". Or to the rest of us "What the hell is that noise? How is it at all enjoyable? You can't even dance to it!"
A remix of Cinema that was recorded by Skrillex is said to be "Brostep", but only because it thrust the genre into popularity after being used by the WWE and receiving a grammy.

Brostep is a dance step which is a modified version of the Pogo where you jump up and down in place. This dance is commonly found in dub-step venues. The brostep is typically limited to very drunk fraternity boys with no rhythm who jump up and down on the dance floor while fist pumping or flailing their arms. Salient points of the brostep are:
1. You are very drunk or on drugs
2. You have a drink in one hand you spill on everyone around you
3. Your flailing arms knock the drinks out of bystanders hands and spill it all over them
4. You land on bystander's toes

5. Repeat these steps as you push you way onto an already crowded dance floor
6. Dancing in a circle with your other brosteppers is optional.
7. Yell things like "Fuck yeah" "Yeah Bro" "Doood" and "I'm so fucked up"

what the hipsters of EDM think that some dubstep should be just because it isnt done to the exact detail of the dubstep standards. this group of idiots think they are better than everyone and they know it all. brostep in reality doesn't exist. sadly these idiots do though
"brostep doesnt follow the tempo of dubstep"

A petty excuse to not like dubstep artists such as Rusko, Datsik, Dotor P, and Flux Pavillion. Because they push the envelope.
Hater: Man I just dont like Rusko he's so......Brostep

Actual Dubstep Fan: FUCK. YOU.
